The gap year that lets you do it all
With EF Gap Year, you can learn a language, participate in service learning, and intern abroad in different locations around the world.
Choose from 21 destinations in Europe, Asia, Latin America, Africa, and Oceania. Return home a global citizen, ready to take on whatever your future holds in store.
How long do you want to be away? We offer three different program lengths.
Every EF Gap is comprised of different program modules. Some give you the ability to customize your destination, while others are fixed. Learn more about these building blocks below.
David A., EF Gap Semester Class of Fall 2019 Harvard University
My gap semester made me a more confident person. With my new confidence and leadership skills, I feel more ready and mature when it comes to entering college in the fall.
Hannah S., New York EF Gap Semester Class of Spring 2019
I am immensely grateful for the travel, service, and educational opportunities that EF has provided for me. Thanks to the emphasis our mentors placed on professional development, setting realistic goals, and career trajectory, I am both well-prepared and excited to start my freshman year of college.
